Posey is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey started the last two games after coming off the concussion list Friday and didn't miss a beat as he went 4-for-9 with one double, one run scored and one RBI. Stephen Vogt will take over behind the dish and bat sixth in the series finale.
Posey (concussion) went 2-for-4 with a double in Friday's 7-0 loss to Arizona. It was Posey's first game back from the 7-day concussion IL, and he was able to carry over the success he was having at the plate (.300/.333/.540 over his last 15 games) prior to his brief absence. There were no reports of any setbacks with the 32-year-old, so he should be back behind the dish for Saturday night's contest before likely getting Sunday's day game off.
Posey (concussion) was activated off the 7-day injured list Friday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey officially cleared the concussion protocol and ended up spending a couple days more than the seven-day minimum on the injured list. The 32-year-old had a slow start to the season but appeared more locked in prior to the concussion with a .300/.333/.540 slash line over his last 15 games.
Posey (concussion) is on track to return from the 7-day injured list for Friday's game at Arizona, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey caught a bullpen session and hit against live pitching Tuesday, but still needs to run the bases to fully illustrate he's clear of concussion-like symptoms. The 32-year-old appears to be progressing nicely, but he still has to officially clear the concussion protocol.
Posey (concussion) took batting practice in the cage prior to the Giants' game Sunday against the Reds, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey still has multiple steps to clear in the concussion protocol before he's eligible to return from the injured list Wednesday, but his ability to resume baseball activities implies that he has already progressed on some level. For what it's worth, Posey said his condition continues to improve and noted that he expects he'll be ready to go by the middle of the week. The Giants will get by with Stephen Vogt as their primary catcher until Posey is cleared to return.
